New Campus Store and fall guided tours


Royal Roads is excited to share that the Gift Shop will reopen this Tuesday, Sept. 5 in its new location on the main floor of the LIC, as the newly branded, “Campus Store”.  The convenient location, adjacent to University Reception, will benefit students by being closer to their academic activities and will be open 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily.

In addition, with beautiful, warm days lingering into fall, guided public tours of the castle and gardens will continue to be offered daily at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., seven days per week until Thanksgiving weekend when the tourist season winds down. At that time guided tours will adjust to Monday to Friday until the end of November.  

We appreciate your support in redirecting visitors to purchase their tour admissions at the garden booth located in the courtyard level on the west side of Hatley Castle. Please note, complimentary garden access is being extended for the fall season. The museum will remain open during this time: accessible to the public via the guided tours. Outside of those hours public and student group tours can be arranged by calling Campus Services.
